At the invitation of the manager, my husband and I returned to Blue Plate Cafe to give them a second chance. It was a total 180 from our last lunch there. Our server, Sheree, was delightful. She was friendly, attentive, and efficient. Every need was taken care of, including tea refills and a To Go cup, filled with ice and... More

Blue Plate has a great breakfast offering. When I was there the place was packed for breakfast. The man I was with said it was like that all the time. My breakfast was the best. Portions were large and very tasty.

Good local spot for breakfast. Overall menu should satisfy most palates. The service is attentive and they keep your coffee filled and food delivered timely. Parking can be a bit problematic as this is a popular spot, especially on the weekends. It is worth the wait though.

They have a rotating meat and three menu with three meats and several vegetable choices. It is always good. They have a full menu, too. They have one of the best breakfast in town. The service is good. It's a little pricey but not too bad so just 4 stars.

Not many people order the fried chicken and I do not know why? It is always excellent but it is listed as a separate item from the daily specials. My wife and I always order the fried chicken now that we know about it. It is always hot and you can sub any of the daily veggies for the offered... More

This is not the kind of food I can eat all the time. But when I do go, blue plate delivers. I love the casseroles and desserts and their hospitality.

Another successful Southern meal. As busy as this place was you would have thought it was in the middle of a city with no other restaurants around. People were lined up out the door waiting on a table.

Stopped for lunch during a day of shopping. At first glance, I was impressed with how clean the restaurant was - not fancy, but clean. That's always a good start. The service was very friendly and fast, as you would hope at lunch time. I ordered a meat & 3 plate. It was delicious and the portions were generous. I... More
